Wired is sponsoring another Creative Commons Benefit Concert at at Irving Plaza, on September 29. This is the second time Wired’s done this. The first time, the artists (Gilberto Gil and David Byrne) were inspiration to many in the movement. This time the artists are practitioners of remix culture: Mike Patton‘s experimental pop supergroup Peeping Tom, DJ/producer Diplo, and mash-up/remix artist Girl Talk.
All (as in 100% with no deduction at all) of the proceeds go to Creative Commons. Tickets are $25 each (plus service charge) and are available online at Ticketmaster.
The event is a part of Next Music, which kicks off WIRED NextFest, a four-day festival featuring more than 130 interactive exhibits from scientists and researchers from around the world.
